Primary Research- From looking at my research I needed to take photos of my characters and backgrounds. From all the photos I took I only chose a few to use in my interactivity story. from these chosen photos i used Photoshop to help me edit them and to make the tree fade into Hettie’s face. All Photoshop photos went to plan and worked well with my interactivity story.
Secondary Research- I had to research three professional work via the internet to help me be inspired for my own interactivity. I did all my pre-planning which helped me previously before making it and making it easier for me to understand using my storyboard, scene list, dialogue script and scene overviews.
Primary Research- For this project I found different images on google to help me in a word document and then placed all my ideas what I imagined and made into reality on to my blog. For most of this I used my imagination and put all my thoughts onto paper, so that I would make my 2D animation look what I had in my mind from eating an apple.
Secondary Research- I researched into professional work that inspired me and helped me in making my 2D animation. My findings were put onto my blog and displayed with photographs to show what I was saying come alive with the photos. I also researched into job roles from the creative skills set research. I found out all different jobs to do with 2D animation and what skills and qualifications you needed to be for the job, this would then let me and others visiting my blog how to be able to for fill their dreams and what they will need to become a 2D animation.
Primary Research- For my own research which I collected myself was mainly taking my own photographs of around shrewsbury and one of my peers in the class. This is beacuse I had to do a compositing photography shoot to help me maybe doing this in my final production. This helped me a lot however I liked colour pop photography the best. This is where you change the photo from colour to black and white and add some colour to my photograph. When taking one of my photographs for my final production I did this which made my picture look better and more exciting for the human eye to admire and appreciate it. When doing these photography skills I learnt a lot of new skills to do on Adobe Photoshop and to help me with my project.
Secondary Research- For my existing research I had to present my work onto a word document which I then put onto my blog; where I had found examples of professional work which would help me gain inspiration from them to my final piece of work, I also had to research job roles in the creative media sector where photographic skills would be required – I found this information out on creative skill set website which is specifically for media jobs which tell you everything you need to now.
Primary Research- When collecting my research I found that gogglies was a great way to deliver the children’s TV programme. So I went onto which fruit and vegetables I will need and how which one would be better to cut in half and make flat, so when I make my animation it will look realistic. Using stop motion the fruit will need to be flat as the camera is looking straight onto the background so the fruit and vegetables will need to be suitable to cut in half and be suitable to use with stop motion animation. I am hoping by taking on my own research and finding out by my self my animation will look great and be suitable for my chosen audience and they find the animation enjoyable.
Secondary Research- From looking at all my research via the internet I collected a lot of useful professional work to help me with my infomercial and my interactivity, audio and visuals to do with my animation. All the infomercials that I looked at all had some sort of message to tell from telling the story of the infomercial.
Before buying fruit and vegetables I looked at doing cut outs of them but I didn’t like the flatness of them when on the background and the wiggly eyes didn’t look excellent on them. So I decided to get the real fruit and vegetables so that it looked more realistic and so that the eyes fitted perfectly. I needed a message to get across that you need to eat you five a day. So I thought of “Stop, Remember your five a day.” which maybe told the younger children that were my audience that they should remember everyday and also find the infomercial enjoyable and exciting for them to be glued to the animation and to not get board about it.
I also researched into different types of animation such as infomercials, stop motion, and key frame animation which is based around photography which I wanted mine to be based on. I found out a lot of information to be able to pick that the best one to use for what I wanted to do was stop motion and to use dragon frame when putting the animation all together.
From putting the party hats I made on the fruit and vegetable it didn’t look good or effective. So from this I thought I could photoshop them onto each individual photograph. Looking at this they still didn’t look good, they look much better with just wiggly eyes. In my opinion they still look effective and that they are in a nightclub as they are dancing and also the background is a nightclub looking set.
